10-time Grammy winner John Legend has joined The Voice as an advisor.
The 38-year-old singer will mentor Adam Levine's team on Season 12 of the NBC reality competition, according to E! News.
Season 12 will feature Levine, Alicia Keys, Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani as coaches, and premiere Feb. 27. Stefani and singer Celine Dion announced Friday on the Today show that Dion will serve as Stefani's advisor.
"To get, like, the prize right here, everybody's going to be so mad -- the other coaches -- that I got you," Stefani said.
"I am blown away by [Celine's] unbelievable story. Having this unbelievable gift to be able to speak through music to the whole world," she added.
Us Weekly reported country star Luke Bryan will mentor Shelton's team, with DJ Khaled to advise Keys'. The mentors appear during the Battle Rounds portion of the competition.
Legend last released the album Darkness and Light in December, which includes the singles "Love Me Now" and "Penthouse Floor." The singer's wife, model Chrissy Teigen, called out a photographer last week for reportedly bombarding her and Legend with racist questions.
